Sister Wives Recipes : Meri’s Streusel Cake

Sister Wives recipes Meri Streusel Cake

Any Sister Wives fans out there? I am (raising my hand in shame). I know, Sister Wives is a true guilty-pleasure show, but for years I’ve followed the Brown family as it went from Kody, Meri, Christine, and Janelle to now adding Robyn. The family is full of kids, and full of drama. But one thing is sure: with that many kids, you have to have food — lots of it.

TLC, the company that produces Sister Wives, has a page full of Sister Wives recipes. I browsed for a bit, and thought it would be fun to try a few of the Sister Wives recipes.

Today, I bring you–

Meri’s Streusel Cake

Here is the recipe (edited, because I have to say that many of the recipes on TLC’s website seem to be missing a thing or two):


  • 1 1/2 cup plus 1-1/2 Tablespoon flour, white or whole wheat (note that I substituted ground flax seed for the extra 1.5 T flour)
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened (I used 1/2 cup canola oil and 1/2 cup shredded zucchini)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon flour
  • 2 Tablespoon melted butter
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I skipped these as we don’t like walnuts)

Grease 8×8 pan and layer 1/2 batter, 1/2 topping, 1/2 batter, 1/2 topping. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

The streusel cake was a hit and disappeared the same evening I baked it. I would recommend doubling the amount of toppingĀ  — it could have used quite a bit more. It made a delicious dessert, and would be nice for breakfast as well.

  1. I have never seen that show. Probably ’cause I watch very little TV. I prefer to read! The cake sounds and looks delicious. Since my husband has to watch his sugars and carbs, I don’t bake much anymore.

  2. I am just heading out to the store and am definitely getting stuff to make this! I think I just need the walnuts. Cakes like this are nice because it’s not a bunch of crazy ingredients and they almost always fly out of the pan/ off the plate.
